I am new to Nengo and Loihi and I have just been able to run the various examples in the Nengo Loihi documentation. I am wondering if it is possible to use the STDP rules supported by Loihi in a Nengo model, or whether there are plans to implement them and what is needed for that to happen. Thanks for any help.
No, currently only the PES learning rule is supported in Nengo Loihi. You can use lots of learning rules in Nengo core (including STDP), but they wouldn’t be running on the Loihi chip. We would like to add more learning rules to Nengo Loihi, but it’s a significant amount of work so it probably won’t be supported in the near term.
